“Main Street Farmers's Market a feast for the senses.”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

On Sundays, just a short walk from the bicycle path along the beach is a wonderful farmers' market that has something for everyone. It is filled with locals and tourists alike enjoying the food booths, children's attractions, buskers and of course shopping for a wide assortment of organic products. Loved it. Parking is available for free for the hours of the market down by the beach bike path. Just tell the parking attendants in the booth that's what you are there for and leave before the market closes at 1:30. We decided to extend our stay and paid the very reasonable fee of $8 so we could shop on Main Street and have lunch. To top off the perfect day, we pulled our bikes and helmets off our car and took a two hour bike ride along the beach path. FABULOUS!

“Everything a farmers market should be, and then some!”
Reviewed 22 November 2011

Spent a lazy Sunday morning here and was surprised at the breakfast offerings. Most farmers markets that I attend are primarily produce...this one was different. The beautiful produce was there to be sure, but there were so many breakfast choices! Lovely craft items and live music to boot!

“Organic, fresh fruits and vegetables”
Reviewed 2 September 2011

The Santa Monica Farmers Market is a must do. The Wednesday market has more vendors than the weekend market. Either way you are guaranteed to find some delicious fruits and vegetables.

“Real Farmers and Real Prices!”
Reviewed 28 July 2011

I have been to many so called Farmers Market in So Cal and many are just another type os swat meet. This one is real with real farmer from all over the Southland. I met one that came in from Hemet, CA. And they found it to be the best place to sell their herbs. The prices are also not out of line. Better food than the other markets. Worth the drive. I was in the area from Victorville and made the stop just because I was there, but they have items that I would not be able to find in the desert, so for me it worth the drive.

“Santa Monica Farmers Markets”
Reviewed 26 May 2010

Santa Monica has four farmers markets each week: Wednesday, 2 on Saturday and Sunday, held at a variety of locations - visit their website for directions and location details farmersmarket.smgov.net.

Fresh, seasonal produce year round, rain or shine and open all holidays (except X-mas and New Years days).

These markets really do it right. All the produce is beautiful, grown in California and often organic (look for the signs).

The Wednesday and Saturday markets are focused solely on the produce and the farmers while the Saturday Pico market has a few more prepared foods and is located in a nice park and the Sunday market is a whole community festival including farmers, prepared food, local retailers, pony rides, bands and other fun children's activities as well as a nice picnic area for relaxing in the sun.
